Pain inside the mind unwilling to be set free
Confusion brings about a level of uncertainty
Never to be controlled but casually maintained
The vessels begin to pound as I claw within my brain
Why am I unstable, always disguising what is wrong
I feel strength within that subsides before too long
Where is the escape and when will it come
Have I just fallen asleep and permanently become numb
